The consumers' organisation was condemned after a member of the public complained about advertising on the Test Aankoop website. Test Aankoop promised a tablet computer, while in actual life consumers received a simple gadget with a touchscreen or Wi-Fi. The technical details too contained mistakes in the Dutch version.
Test Aankoop rejects the watchdog's findings and plans to appeal.
Test Aankoop's Jean-Philippe Ducart: "The whole discussion centres on the word 'tablet'. People think of equipment like an iPad, but a tablet need not necessarily possess all these characteristics."
